2017 Jeep Compass Leaking Brown Fluid

Just noticed that my 2017 Jeep compass is leaking brown fluid, I'm thinking it might be an oil leak, taking it in to be checked. Only has 22K miles. Hope it is nothing serious.

From where the leak is coming from? It is the very front end of the car (like almost under the front bumper) check you oil filter. Oil filter is at the front of the engine and you can reach to it from the front. If the loose filter is leaking oil, it will be covered in oil, so you wont miss it. Mine got loose on its own and started leaking oil early this spring, it stopped after I hand tightened it.
